I'll tell ya what; i'm well bored tonight.
Half my flatmates (both lads included) have gone home for the weekend, as have various others that I hang around with downstairs! Argh!

Oh aye, England were crap.

Well that was a mess.

Good to see Lampard & Gerrard finally featuring. I have to say that Terry, for me, was the weak link - was caught out far too many times. Carradonna did a half decent job as left full back for a right-footed centre-half, so they decided to beat down Young instead - who put up a decent fight. Owen was sharp, worked hard, but is still trying to play into form. Crouch wasn't too bad, but he should have been more confident in the air. His link play was excellent imo, and allowed the CMs to get into it. There is still not enough decent crosses from the flanks for my liking, both from the touchline and from deep; too much goes into a congested middle area.

Why are there no highlights on TV tonight!?!? I was at work all day and wouldn't mind watching more than the clips they show on the news.

It doesn't make sense at all.
He's crap, just because he's big doesn't merit him being put in the team because it makes sense.
I've been converted to your way of thinking :adore: :p:

Crouch is definately not good enough to be in England's first team squad. He hasn't got the ability and instinct of a striker. Darren Bent should have been upfront with Owen. Crouch is a liabilty... thankfully we have Wayne Rooney for the next game.

:cool:
Aye, he's a joke.
See him today? Crap. People who say Bent and Owen are too similar should hold back their suggestions until after they have seen them play. My comments about Crouch not being good enough were proved to be correct today. But, aye, glad Wayne is back for the next game!
Rooney and Bent up front!

Suspended, surprisingly enough. He's only in the team for "training", which is a complete waste of time. Should take someone who deserves a place. As for Bent & Owen/Defoe... two odd socks don't make a pair.
Isn't he eligible for the Poland game? I thought they had to submit a squad to FIFA for the two internationals, rather than submitting a squad for each game.

Defo play Rooney up front next match, and preferably take off Gerrard & Carra. The fewer Liverpool players to get injured in that shambles of a team, the better.

And wtf Dan, you're actually singing Rooney's praises now? A season can't linger long in the mind of an evertonian. Just as well really, just to banish in grand illusions left lingering from last season.

:rolleyes:

He (crouch) definately had a crap game. He's a good link up player, but his technique isn't particularly(sp) good.

I think Owen should have scored today, with the amount of chances he had. But Sven is really annoying me now- we played crap today and were lucky to win.

There's no doubting his ability as a player, although he is also the biggest ******** in the Premier League!

Holland are beating Czech Rep 2-0! Since we beat Austria today, if that score stays the same, don't we qualify as (at least) one of two best runners up?

A crap game? He played the build up for most of the opportunities we had! No Crouch, there'd be little target for Gerrard and Lampard, and next to nothing for Owen to feed off. Owen, imo, had a good game. He got into very good positions running off the ball, made the penalty, should have been granted the other, and was hunting and foraging before it all broke down. Try watching games instead of analysing statistics. Rooney, defo talented, has barely even attempted to pick out Owen whilst playing alongside him. Play him anyway because he gives a spark to our team, but isn't it ironic that this is the only game where both Gerrard and Lampard have contributed something (though still not on par with club form)?

Best runners-up get automatic places.

Czech Rep are a certain number of points behind us. If they lose today, then it's impossible (even if they win their next and we lose our next game) for them to beat our points total. So we qualfiy, and they have to go into a play-off
